DBT Week in Review - 10/1/2010


Hustling today so I can get away from the computer for a bit and go play in the Redwoods and swim in the river.

Tomorrow's St. Louis poster by Wes Freed. He is on fire. Available at the show!

Over The Weekend: Drive-By Truckers, The Henry Clay People at House of Blues - Dallas Music - DC9 At Night:
"Adding to the showmanship of the evening, the stage was adorned with colorful and distinctive murals from artist, Wes Freed. Freed's Dali-meets-Pekinpah-style creations have been hugely responsible for the band creating an image above and beyond simply knowing how to down a bunch of Jack Daniels. And, actually, the coordinated illuminations of the murals were a fun part of the well-produced light-show. Such an effort provided a nice bit of extra value to the fans that have witnessed the group play so many times before with only the smell of stale beer adding to the ambience."

"At their best, DBTs are the raspy voices of the Recession Generation."

Johnny Cash disturbed about Iraq invasion before his death | Raw Story:
"'He went to sleep not knowing if we had invaded Iraq. It was the last thought on his mind. When he woke up, I was sitting by his side. He looked at me and reached over to pull the television over to him. He was looking at me like, 'Did it happen?' I said, 'Dad, it happened.' He went, 'No! No!' Can you imagine? This is the first thing he thought of when he woke up from a weeklong coma.'"

I am glad that the truckers are getting good press, but the paragraph you posted about the murals...well, good for Wes, but fuck the guy who wrote it. "..with only the smell of stale beer adding to the ambience."

Hi, buddy. Welcome to the rock show. It's all about the music to some of us. Maybe you should stay home and play "Halo" next time.
